Vice president of the Delegate Progress Association, Natalie Armstrong said, "Adults and children are invited to bring along their animals in cages or on leads for the Blessing of the Flock by Anglican Minister the Reverend John Kuruvilla.

"The Reverend will get into the spirit of the occasion, arriving in a horse drawn buggy driven by Bradly Matthews.

"We are urging the congregation to dress-up in colonial costume that will be judged with the winner announced at the School of Arts luncheon later that day.

"Morning tea will be available at the church also," Ms Armstrong said.

The Delegate Heritage weekend kicks off at 9am on Saturday morning at Bill Jeffries Park by the river with children's games.

Following on at 10am are the Junior Sprint and Snowy River Sprint with the Tug O' War at 11am.

There is a cricket match starting at 12.30pm at Bill Jeffries Park where stalls will be operating throughout the day.

An afternoon billy tea and damper for $5 per head is at the Delegate Settlers Hut and the Bundian Way Gallery will be open exhibiting paintings and photos by students of the ancient Aboriginal traditional walking track.

Entertainment continues into the evening with a dinner dance at the Delegate Country Club.

Entertainers on the night will be Gus and Sherri Olding of Frock'n'Troll rocking the night away.

Meals on the evening will be between $18 and $25 per head.
